I Love Roo!

I had never inked up this kangaroo - I use the 'stalker bunny' from this set all the time, but somehow the kangaroo just never got any love, until now!


Supplies: stamps from Paper Smooches; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; distress inks in Antique Linen & Barn Door; kraft card stock; classic small oval Nesties; Spectrum Noir markers; Spots & Dots embossing folder; heart gem from stash; googly eyes

I paper-pieced the kangaroo with kraft card stock, and added a little bit of shading with my Spectrum Noir markers. The repeated stamping of the sentiment was a last-minute idea and I love how it turned out, with the one popping in red. 



xoxo,
Jessi

At first sight, I would not have thought you paper pieced the kangaroo. It looks great and so does the sentiment border!

Great idea to add the shading with the Spectrums, it makes your card go from Wow to WoWsers!
